🦇The Dark Knight🦇
100% hand sculpted Batman bust made with modeling chocolate. No molds were used on this. It’s all chocolate with the exception of a straw to hold its head up when I was making the body.
I started sculpting a head with no particular look or face and I ended up doing Batman instead. How did that happen?; who knows!..
I did not use a photo reference during sculpting. I started to see the face come into shape and I just followed what I recall with images I have in my head. I amazed myself because I rarely sculpt and I’ve been dying to try it out ever since I saw a #jimmckenzie
video and I got hooked; I had to try it out. I started last night and finished it today. .
White Modeling Chocolate Recipe:
1 lb White Chocolate (non temp)
2 fl oz Corn Syrup
Melt chocolate, slightly warm syrup and add to the chocolate. Mix until it becomes a paste, do not overmix, pour onto a plastic wrap and wrap it up. Allow to set up, once it does, go ahead and knead until you have a smooth texture similar to fondant.
Depending on Chocolate, your results may vary. If too soft, reduce syrup, if you hard add more syrup
